Conan the Barbarian (Blu-ray 3D)Kashif Ahmed
Surprisingly enjoyable reboot of author Robert E. Howard's cult character, immortalized on screen by Arnold Sharwarzenegger in the 80s with 'Conan The Barbarian' and its less than stellar sequel 'Conan The Destroyer'. Fans were sceptical from the start, but Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa ('Game of Thrones') is well cast as the Cimmerian savage. And though he's not as awe inspiringly huge as the Austrian Oak, its safe to assume that Momoa isn't a habitual steroid user and was thus unable to achieve the freakishly large physique of his predecessor. 'Conan' follows the classic revenge narrative and sees our barbaric protagonist on an epic journey through the land of Hyboria in a bid to kill the tyrant who massacred his tribe.
Now I've got to give director Marcus Nispal ('Pathfinder') some credit, for he's a taken a lot of flack for this film and some of the criticism seems totally unwarranted; after all, 'Conan' is exactly what one could hope for out of a 'Conan' movie. I wasn't expecting it to be 'Lord Of The Rings' but was still drawn into the unique mythology and intricately designed Hyborian landscapes. For in many ways, this incarnation of Conan is a lot more epic than those that came before and though it drags a little towards the end, still makes for an entertaining, satisfyingly authentic and brutal adventure. Jason Momoa, though lacking the intimidating physical presence of Schwarzenegger, puts in a heroic performance whilst co-stars Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Saïd Taghmaoui et all get into the spirit of things as staple 'Swords & Sorcery' characters: witch, priestess and thief. Not nearly as bad as you've been led to believe, 'Conan' is a decent B-movie that's definitely worth a look.
